Disturbing, intelligent, funny, and perverse. Pure Samanta Schweblin.
In her second novel, Kentukis, Samanta Schweblin exceeds all expectations with a story of crossed lives and new technologies along the lines of the series Black Mirror. Several characters from different continents, of widely varying ages and social status, come into contact with each other through their high-tech pets, the kentukis. Under the harmless, amiable disguise of cuddly toys, the kentukis provide remote access to other people’s private lives. Through their shameless gaze, we’ll discover that trusting the kindness of strangers can lead to a marvellous adventure, an unexpected love, or unequalled terror.
